Gulasch (Goulash)

Goulash comes originally from Hungary, but as Hungary was a part of the Austro Hungarian Empire for many centuries, Goulash is also very popular in Austria.

Goulash is usually made of beef, onions, red peppers, and paprika powder. The original name in Hungary is gulyás and means the word for a stockman or herdsman ("gulya" means a herd of animals, usually cows).

Goulash is widely known in other parts of the world. It has traditionally been considered a simple home meal because it requires little attention after the initial preparation and because it uses more affordable cuts of meat.

You can order Goulash in Austrian restaurants, but be aware that not all restaurants in Austria offers the spicy dish.
